    Chinese takeaway at home - sweet chilli prawns, chicken satay, chicken curry, beef and mushrooms, vegetable spring rolls, cheese rolls, sesame prawn toast, prawn crackers, noodles, rice. We had kids in our group so choices werent as adventurous as they could be; delicious though. I paid for everyone (€55 for four adults and two kids).

    Might do some pickled red cabbage to go with it.

    last night we went out for New York Italian style food. We started with gorgonzola cheese with red wine poached pear (didnt see any pear in it), and sardines on toast with tomatoes (it was OK). I had canneloni for the main and the pesto sauce was great. shared caserecci pasta with roast turnipy butternut squash which was also good. Dessert was nutella cheesecake and pecan pie with cocktails and prosecco - hard to walk afterwards.

    today we had sushi and sake!!! it was great.

    Should have photographed yesterday's vindaloo, because it was brilliant. Lamb vindaloo with rice, naan, popadom, Cobra beer, coffee to finish €13!

    Today I have discovered my best Portuguese dish yet. Peas.

    Fantastic. Peas with pork, rice, egg in a sausage gravy. Pure fucking bliss for €8 with a beer.

    This evening I made a really hot, zingy cashew and veg noodle stir fry and it was just right after what feels like years of sausage, cheese and bread.

    Last night went to another Portuguese neighbours house to eat over the festive period,I am feeling guilty as thats three in three days. Big prawns in shell, bacalhau com grao which is salt cod with chickpeas and eggs, duck rice, octopus salad, pudding which like a caramel, chocolate and carob cake, sweet rice and cheeses.I bought some Xmas crackers round which they had never seen before and despite my demonstration some just put one in either hand and pulled, others just opened them and nobody could understand the jokes or riddles but they liked the hats and the trinket things inside. One you are established as part of their community the Portuguese are the most generous people I have ever met.I will have to reciprocate but I dont think cooking a xmas turkey dinner is going to be good enough.

    Can you not get them a chippy tea The39thStep, if there are proper chippies in Portugal? That is always an excellent tea. :cool:

    Mushroom & spinach quiche for tea tonight. Might have it shortly as I'm bored. :hmm:

    There are some places in Albufeira who do cod and chips but tbh there are lots of better fish meals than cod in Portugal. I mentioned steak and kidney pies to a few but that was met with raised eyebrows. They dont get gravy either.

    Don't blame them on the kidney thing - I've never fathomed why anyone would eat piss sponges. :hmm:

    Probably leftovers and cheese but I really want pizza. I haven’t had one for months. I don’t think Mr Looby will allow this.
